Welcome

York Musical Society (YMS) is a large and friendly choral society, directed by David Pipe. The choir sings most of its concerts in
the wonderful setting of York Minster. It has contributed
to the musical life of the city of York since 1876.

We look forward to seeing you at our concerts, annual workshop and other events. We welcome new members and Friends of YMS.

Christmas Concert with York Brass Quintet
Saturday 8th December, 4pm, St Lawrence Parish Church, York
Conductor: Richard Shephard, Organist: David Pipe

York Musical Society invites you to start your holiday season and get into the Christmas mood with a family-friendly afternoon performance of old favourites and a few festive surprises.

The music will include some well-loved choruses from Handel’s Messiah, carols both new and old, and Vaughan William’s celebratory Fantasia on Christmas Carols. In addition we can expect seasonal and uplifting pieces from David Pipe on organ and from the York Brass Quintet, who performed to great effect at last year’s Christmas concert.

To quote Alasdair Jamieson’s review in the York Press, “after the final choral Christmas greetings we went out into the gloaming inwardly warmed and uplifted.”

Stay for tea and cake afterwards to complete the festive mood.
